Ozeki 10 SMS Gateway

SMPP over SSL/TLS

This guide gives you the instructions you should follow if you wish to use SMPP over a secure SSL/TLS connection. SMPP over SSL/TLS has 3 main advantages: The network traffic between your system and the system of the SMS service provider will be encrypted. You will be able to validate the identity of the SMS service provider, which is great, because you can detect a Man in the Middle attack this way, and finally the service provider will also be able to verify your system if you setup client SSL certificates. Ozeki 10 SMS gateway supports all of these options.
